The inside of this Sydney café and restaurant, which was created by a local company called Lot 1 Design, is inspired by the hues and textures of a natural reserve that is located nearby.
✅ Best Coffee Canvas Wall Art
Lightweight and easy to hang. – Lightweight and easy to hang. Frames are well put together, but you can tell they’re definitely mass made. Design is cute however, and with three you can create your own mass hanging to accommodate your wall size. Aesthetically, would probably work best in a bigger size. Arrived packed tight and individually wrapped. Colors are bright.
✅ Best Coffee Patent Poster
Chic subtle high-end look – Amazing quality, very chic sophisticated and expensive looking-the colors are understated and subtle. There is a matte finish to the texture and quality of the print, and looks very high-end. Looks at least three times more expensive than it is. The finish is quite beautiful
✅ Best Coffee Print Pillows
Fabulous product!!! – They look great on my front porch. Have them for a Fall decor look. Easy to put your existing pillow inside!
✅ Best Coffee Condiment
Looks great, for the price – This looks more appropriate for an indy coffee shop than most kitchens. It does its job for now, it sturdy and is not going to fail, but it has a flaw. The plastic piece that slide in the front, they are wearing poorly and showing age.
✅ Best Coffee Shop Call Bell
Fun Addition to Coffee Bar – Looks great on my coffee bar and people get a kick out of ringing the bell when they make their coffee!
Gumbuya is a restaurant by day and a restaurant by night, and it can be found in the Sydney district of Sutherland Shire. It is situated on the bottom floor of a building that has many residential units.
The restaurant is run by Noel Melan, a chef who works for the government, and its name comes from a phrase in Aboriginal language that means gathering place.
The restaurant is able to be opened out to the tree-lined street thanks to a series of bi-folding timber-frame windows that run down the façade on each side of the entrance door.
The outside of the building is covered in the same light blue tiles that are used within the restaurant to line the bar. This is done so that there is a clear visual connection between the exterior and the inside of the building.
Tammy Miconi, principal of Lot 1 Design, told Dezeen that using natural materials and colours, as well as the restaurant’s link to the street, help the space to shift from a daytime venue to a midnight event.
The servery, which is located around the back of the house, is one more space that undergoes transformations during the course of the day.
Miconi provided the following clarification on the servery: “The servery is quite a significant statement that has been created more like a real restaurant servery incorporating heat lights above the food-placement zones.” The servery is illuminated in the evening as a focus of interest in the area thanks to the use of strip lighting and feature lighting.
“This is paired with more of a café type seating arrangement including the adjustments made to the front face,” the author writes. “This allows customers to leisurely relax on bar stools while reflecting on the cityscape via the bi-folding wood windows.”
When night falls, the bi-folding windows may be folded down to provide for a cosier and more private dining experience. This can be accomplished by separating the inside and outside sitting areas.
According to Miconi, “the customer was craving a room that felt warm, friendly, and unpretentious,” and this was what they were looking for.
“A place where groups or individuals can meet at the large communal table that greets you upon entry or at the soft banquette or casual window seating, where you can sit back and enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine with your evening dinner.” “A place where you can sit back and enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine with your evening dinner.”
An industrial constructing in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighbourhood was designed by Shane Davis and Partners to function as a vegan cafe by day and a bar and restaurant, full with a nightclub, after dark. This building is one of many eating venues that are designed to transition from day to nighttime. Other eating venues that are designed to transition from day to nighttime include:
